Improve Your Offense and Defense with the “10 Yard Fight” Drill!

By dustin.moscoso - Last updated: Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Archbishop (MD) Spalding Head Boys Lacrosse Coach, Kenneth “Bear” Davis, shows you a drill called 10 Yard Fight. This drill begins to set the foundation for youth players to play solid defense using their feet and body position, while giving the offensive player an opportunity to practice using several different dodges.

10 Yard Fight

Drill Summary: This is a quick drill to set up using cones that are set 10 yards apart from each other into a square. The older your players are, you can widen or lengthen the distance between the cones. The object of the drill is for the offensive player to begin at one end of the box with a ball in his stick and to successfully get to the other side without being pushed out of bounds or dropping the ball. The drill can be done in a progressive manner where the defender may not have a stick, and work up to using a stick. You can make this drill competitive with one player having to do five push-ups if they are pushed out, or something similar. Coach Davis feels that this drill can be used from kindergarteners all the way up to college.

Teaching Points: Coach Davis uses several different catch phrases to engrain certain points to the defensive players. Some examples are “keep your nose behind your toes”, “hands on hips” and “keep your feet moving.”

Expert youth lacrosse coach, Kenneth “Bear” Davis, goes over the simplicity yet effectiveness of what he calls the best play in lacrosse, the “Give ‘n Go”.  This play is great because an offensive player is able to take advantage of an opponent’s tendency to relax after the offensive player has passed the ball to a teammate. He also goes over a great move for the more advanced player.

Best Play in Lacrosse: Give ‘n Go

Drill Setup: Coach Davis goes through a simple whiteboard illustration of the drill concept.

Teaching Points:

  • Stay active off the ball, in order to be a threat to the defense
  • Communication, demanding the ball right back after the initial pass

Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Rob Rose, provides you with a ‘Lateral Hurdle Hop Drill’ which is great for developing reaction and quickness in your players. This will develop your players ability to make a change of direction to help them dodge a defender or to be a more effective defender.

6” Lateral Hurdle Hop Drill

Drill Setup:

This drill utilizes a 6” hurdle. If you don’t have one, the player could use their stick as the hurdle. It is best to have the hurdle perpendicular to a line on the field in order to give the player lateral orientation.

Athlete Movements:

The goal is to perform as many two-foot jumps as possible in 10 seconds.

Teaching Points:

  • Make sure that both feet push off and touch equally.
